Southeast Asia’s slow internet speeds have been a long-standing problem, but Globe, one of the leading telecommunications companies in the region, is taking steps to improve the situation.
In response to the pandemic, which has led to an increased need for remote work and online communication, Globe is now offering the latest Fiber-to-the-Room (FTTR) technology in Southeast Asia.
The FTTR technology, powered by Wifi 6 coverage, offers faster and improved connectivity with the ability to back simultaneous internet connectivity on almost 130 devices. The technology has a much larger range than regular plans, which means that there will be no weak spots at home and every corner will be reached. With speeds of up to 1Gbps, FTTR will allow 8k screens for movies and games, making it possible to have a much better online experience.
According to Globe At Home Brand Management VP, Raymond Policarpio, the availability of FTTR will help create more immersive experiences for users. The FTTR plan under GFiber Unli Plan 7499 will include free hub installations, a VIP hotline, and the Globe Home Squad with tech experts for improved home assessment and installation of the network.
In addition to its wider range, FTTR also has a strong anti-interference capacity, which will help avoid disruptions, especially during important meetings and tasks. Pia Gonzales, Globe CMO, stated that Globe understands the need to bring Filipinos, from families to businesses to communities, closer to digital and this new tech could help expedite that process.
The launch of FTTR by Globe is an important step in improving internet connectivity in Southeast Asia, and it is expected to have a positive impact on the remote work and online communication landscape in the region. With this new technology, Globe is committed to providing its customers with the best possible online experience.
